What would the circumstances be for you to approve of torture?

(This is the 16th question in Brett Keane’s Atheist Challenge)

I can’t imagine any situation in which I would approve of torture. I was raised with the understanding that torture is something that the “bad guys” do, and I have always tried my best to remain on the side of the “good guys.”

That may seem old-fashioned, but that’s the way I see it.


I am an atheist, a person who does not believe in the existence of any gods.

Many people don't know a lot about atheists, and have questions about them. In this blog, I do my best to answer them, to help build an understanding between atheists and theists.

Do you have a question? You can post it in the comments to any of my blog entries, and I will do my best to answer it in a new entry.
